I'd love to see that. It's one of those things that doesn't get addressed by many companies and with the rise of 2.4"+ tires, it will be a courtesy to know that measurement.

But it is also the height of the tyre that matters as well. For example a 2.4' odyssey hawk tyre is nowhere near as tall as a 2.35" demolition momentum tyre. So it may fit between the stays but the height of it means it will rub on the bridges/wishbone.

That's why we as builders, have to take to that stuff into account.

Is that bad?

It's much tighter than I like to build rear ends. I typically shoot for something around 2.750".
I know solid had made some barcodes a few years back, do you think you could make them wider due to the wishboners and things?

My Solid made one has just about enough room for the 1.85 I'm currently running.

What's worse?

A) "Vile erecto-stem."

B) Too many spacers under your stem.

C) Ten inch plus bars.

D) All of the Above.

Fuck that. You'd get a new 13' Barcode for nearly that.

Has anyone paid empire yet for their original preorder? I haven't since they said they would wait till they have the frames in hand. I'm worried my order is going to disappear
